Golden Fields Elementary Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, Turkey Tunes, and Pretty Cool Parade

It was a day devoted to celebrating Thanksgiving in a big way at Golden Fields Elementary School. First, students dressed up for a fun turkey trot up and down the halls of the school. Then they took the stage and sang their little hearts out as part of a Turkey Tunes assembly. Finally, the students had more fun in their very own version of a Golden Fields’ Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Everyone hand-made balloon characters and creative themes to float down the halls as part of the parade.

We are thankful for all of the teachers and staff who helped to make the Golden Fields Thanksgiving celebration one to remember.

Happy Thanksgiving from Golden Fields Elementary School!

South Valley School Gym Turned into Turkey Bowling Alley for Thanksgiving Party Fun

There were lots of frozen turkeys taking a tumble down the gymnasium floor at the South Valley School. That’s because the gym was turned into a temporary turkey bowling alley for the school’s Thanksgiving party. The party was complete with music from a DJ and students doing the “Strike Dance” and the “Spare Dance.” They all cheered each other on in the bowling event and made fun memories they will take to the Thanksgiving turkey table.

Happy Thanksgiving from students and staff at the South Valley School.

Thanks to Holiday Oil for Helping Kids and Their Families for the Holidays

It will go a long way in feeding students and their families this holiday season. Holiday Oil stepped up in a big way to collect all kinds of food for the Thanksgiving table and to support Principal’s Pantries in Jordan School District Schools. The donation comes at a time when demand is as high as it has ever been to support those living in our communities.

Holiday Oil also made a financial contribution to the Jordan Education Foundation to help with their annual Christmas for Kids event.

Thank you, Holiday Oil, for making this season much brighter for so many!

Utah Jazz and Jordan Clarkson Provide Thanksgiving and Some Fun for Hundreds of Families

It was an afternoon of great fun and gratitude for about 350 families. The families received full Thanksgiving meals thanks to the generosity of the Utah Jazz and the Jordan Clarkson “JC Cares Foundation”. The meals were distributed at Heartland Elementary School with help of volunteers, the Jordan Education Foundation, and Heartland principal Buddy Alger and his staff.

The Jazz star player, Jordan Clarkson himself, showed up at Heartland Elementary, along with Phoenix Suns’ star Devin Booker, to meet with families, take pictures, sign autographs, and to serve up lots of smiles.

Thanks to Jordan Clarkson, the Utah Jazz, Devin Booker, and all the volunteers for making Thanksgiving happen for those who may have otherwise gone without. You are hero’s working for kids and their families in our communities!

Students Organize Day of Service to Support Service Members, Seniors, and Children with Special Needs in the Community

They are young people with big hearts who want to give back to the community. On Friday, students who attend the Jordan Virtual Learning Academy in grades K-12, came together in-person for a day of service to benefit others in the communities where they live. It was an opportunity for the online learning students to spend time together making a difference in the lives of others.

The students participated in tying blankets for local hospitals, making yarn snow balls for students with special needs at the Kauri Sue Hamilton School, writing thank you cards for local service members, and coloring cards for the elderly.

Great job and thank you for your wonderful acts of kindness JVLA students and staff!
